Transform to run as a router and NAT device

Finally! This project is now documented here - https://antonio.cloud/projects/linux/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-router-access-point-dns-block-ads-vpn/

!!!important Below are notes from my old post

## the command below required sudo

echo "-----------------------"
echo "Shows the configs before changes..."

sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward net.ipv4.conf.eth0.send_redirects

iptables -n -t nat -L POSTROUTING 


echo "-----------------------"
echo "Enabling IPv4 routing packets forward..."

sysctl -q -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1 net.ipv4.conf.eth0.send_redirects=0


echo "-----------------------"
echo "Enabling routing/PAT with ip tables..."

iptables -t nat -C POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE 2> /dev/null || iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE


echo "-----------------------" 
echo "Show configs after changes..."
sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward net.ipv4.conf.eth0.send_redirects
iptables -n -t nat -L POSTROUTING 


echo "-----------------------"
echo "Routing/NAT configuration completed "
